A Sister’s Promise


by: Renita D’Silva

Genre: Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Heartwarming

Review:Elite Award

Sharda and Puja are sisters and best friends. Sharda the sensible, intelligent, responsible, and Puja, the free-spirited, beautiful, fun-loving. Their bond is so close that neither of them can imagine anything separating them. But that’s what secrets do.

What an utterly beautiful story written with elegance. It’s a story of love, loss, sacrifice, and grace. D’Silva paints a vivid picture of India: the beautiful colours, the pungent aromas, and the poverty. She will envelope you into the lives of these two women, sharing in their loss of one another.

A Sister’s Promise will remind you of how strong the bonds of family are. They will transcend time, distance, and any circumstances.

Thank you Bookoture and NetGalley for allowing me the privilege an advanced copy of this wonderful book!

Favourite quote: “We waste the little time we are given in this world with material things, not the things that really matter, she thinks. And then when it is far too late, we long for one more moment together, a moment which, if bestowed, we will draw out and treasure, a moment in which we will say all those things left unsaid, a moment into which we will cram lifetime’s worth of good times.”

Now excuse me while I go call my sister!
